After being packed away for 20+ years, I "rediscovered" these A-7 masks in my collection while setting up a new room.

 

Neat and rare stuff :D

Thanks. I've got several of the repo bladders I bought from Garcia years ago, but I just hate to put a shiny new green bag on on these masks. They're too fragile to display with helmets, so I'll probably keep them archived and stored until I find a safe way of preserving and displaying them. The rubber is showing its age....
